Sheet is a four-column table listing distances and carriage rates to/from the various locations along the Bush & Belt stage route from Lexington, Virginia, to Lexington, Kentucky. Imprint lacks date; Hummel suggested a date of "ca. 1810," however, Wartmann did not take control of the Harrisonburg press until late 1815; that date is supplied here, despite the clear possibility that it could have issued anytime between 1815 and 1840, when the printer died.
